Alert for all Diabetics using Insulin 

This is a reminder that during the hot weather your insulin can be rendered inactive if left in too high temperatures.

All manufacturers' leaflets will advise you of which range your insulin can be safely stored at . The very high temperatures in recent weeks may have inadvertently affected any insulin you might use.

For storage of unused pens or cartridges the recommended range is 2-8 degrees centigrade ( fridge temperature). The pen that you keep out ( and may carry with you if you are using short acting insulin) will have a top temperature between 25-30 degrees centigrade. We would advise not leaving insulin in your car as the heat may exceed this.

If you are in any doubt that you are insulin may not be working , dispose of the current pen/cartridge and start a new one.

Remember that pre-loaded pens will have a use by life of 4-6 weeks depending on type of insulin and manufacturers guidance. If you still have insulin left after this period dispose of this and start a new pen/cartridge.

 

 

New Patient Registrations

We regret to inform you that as from Friday 9th July 2021, we will be undertaking a temporary list suspension. This means that we will not be registering new patients at our practice.

This decision has been taken due to the unprecedented demand for new registrations. The Partners have agreed that continuing to register new patients could potentially jeopardise our ability to provide safe care to those patients already registered at the practice.

We will continue to register:

  • newborn or adopted babies of parents already registered at the Practice who are still living within our boundary.
  • first degree relatives of patients already registered at the Practice who are living at the same address as registered patients and are still living within our boundary.

If you are not currently registered with a GP surgery and are finding it difficult to locate one please click here for further information.
